DCPS Public School Capital Expenditures - Past and Future

The 21st Century School Fund has prepared a detailed analysis of capital expenditures for DC Public Schools capital projects; the analysis is online here.   As the organization recently testified, the city has spent about $1.8 billion on major DCPS facility projects and plans to spend $2.7 billion more by 2019.

About the analysis:   It is a large spread sheet with six tabs at the bottom.   The "Summary" tab provides a ward-by-ward breakdown of past and planned spending on DCPS buildings including two graphs.   One shows capital spending per gross square foot of school space by ward from 2000-2006 and from 2007-2009; the other shows actual and planned capital spending per student by ward from 2006-2009 and 2010-2015.
